THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Was wondering what the protocal was for getting Dwain to paper some points? Price, money order/check, and what he needs for description. Thanks in advance
It's a bone fish hook I found last Labor Day. I posted it several months ago here. I showed it to Dwaain at the Temple show last weekend and he said he would paper it. I have some other things that i would like to paper as well. I realize the info is in the Dealers links, just wondering if anyone else had the "skibby" on what to do. I failed to ask, just excited he looked at it and appreciated it. I will try to post some pictures, more of a looker than a poster! Thanks for the interest!
my consideration of Dewaine, is every time you see him at a show you shake his hand and you tell him who you are. send in your artifacts. maybe someday he will be as friendly as the next person, but in his field he see's so many people that are just interested in the fact that he papers points and dont give him credit for being a human being. He will ALWAYS seem guarded in his responses. I for one am tired of hearing how conceeded he seems. I have heard from many a person that he will open up if you will just give him some room to breathe. I am not attacking you personally Paul, I just have to get that off my chest...
I had a simple question! Didn't want any drama, just a simple question on how to get my "POINTS PAPERED"! Not attacking you personally PAT, Just getting it off my chest! Sorry I asked! END OF DISCUSSION!! Not a trouble-maker, just like arrowheads and no DRAMA!!
WTF are you trying to say Kinyon? Paul wanted info to get a COA, not your opinion of Dwain's personality. I'm sure Dwain gets bombarded with folks approaching him at shows, how he handles it, well that's up to him. I've never met him personally, but i've had some very nice phone conversations with the gentleman. Paul, good luck on your COA & please post some pics.
I was wondering what that was all about too.
Someone emailed me and thinks that they are banned.. I haevn't banned anyone letely.. the board is screwed uop because of the update with the servicer that I didn;t have anythign to do with
IF people are having problems posting or think they are banned. its NOT ME ! Its the server and the message board that is having issues and hopefully will be repaired when they get out the bugs
First of all, I have been trying to respond to this message since I saw I should have been more diplomatic with my response and this is the first time I have been able to send a response since this was posted.
Michelle my sincerest apologies!!
Paul S. I apologize to you as well. I guess I should have clarified. it was the Luling show that was the straw that broke the camels back for me, where I heard several people that did'nt have the common courtesy to bad mouth Dwain face to face instead were talking about him behind his back. this is not the first show where I've seen this and I saw this post and you asking about the protocall and thought this would be a good place to talk about why Dwain is so guarded if you see him out and about and just hand him an artifact to look at.
rgs,you are correct about how Dwain handles his buisiness is up to him. I was not trying to do that, but was trying to explain why he seems so guarded,AND I was not giving an opinion of his personality, I dont know him well enough to do that...
Scientific name :Coleoptera
Common Name:Ironclad Beetle
Or as we call them when we find them in the brush, the good old click bettle. That's a worthy find Hal, worth framing or at least putting a leash on for a new pet. Some of those puppies get pretty big.
I wonder why Texas only has 1 expert it seems on COA'ing arrowheads? It's such a large state you would think there would be room for more.
Doesn't look like there's a lot of them out there anywhere, not just Tx. Not a real competitive market is it?
signing your name to a document of certification carries alot of responsibility's. I believe it takes a lifetime of learning and studys.
That makes sence. With the economy not doing well I bet it can be tough to make a living. You would have to COA a lot of points to pay the bills.
This will be my last say on this, my opinion..... Dwain is the best in the buisness as Texas points are concerned,He is a Knapper in his own right and has put his time in teaching the art. I believe that Flo Town with his knowledge of the art of Knapping could also put his name on a few points. all I know is shapes, and that gets me close, but the intricate details will ALWAYS elude me. The art of finding them, Are my PASSION...
